Netbios name without samba

Hello there,

 

Is there a way to enable the netbios name without using Samba?

 

What I want is that I would like the hostname (or whatever) to appear when other computers (MS Windows) is scanning the device through ethernet.

This is achieved by netbios. Samba has an application called nmbd that will do the trick. But Samba will take up more that 0.5MB in the compressed image. Which is bursting my partitions. (And I don't want to spend that much flash and ram on such a trivial function anyway.)

 

Is there another way?
